So far so good - memorising meds


So much for keeping blog up-to date! 2nd of Feb was my last blog post. I have been on night duty which doesn’t help. Back again tonight so I thought I’d do a quick update before my eyelids hit the floor!

Medication memorising seems to be going well! It is a lot of work but I don’t mind if it works. Here is an example of what I have been doing using Memrise as a learning aid.


The drawing of each image takes some time. The Door/Ant wearing lipstick in a lorry relates to the location in hospital memory palace - pharmacy (door) and animal (ant) item to wear(lipstick) and mode of transport(lorry) = ALL to direct my mind to where image is stored. see blog post memorising medications

The lorry is carrying A LOP eared rabbit URINATING on a foot = A-LOP-URINAL (Allopurinol)
The urine reminds me of uric acid
The foot reminds me that Allopurinol is used to treat Gout

Result Allopurinol - antigout - treats gout and conditions causing an increase of uric acid.

Its so much fun! Medication well and truly grounded in the gray matter between my ears
